It’s Only 4 Minutes — How Bad Can It Really Be?!

Ha! HA! HAHAHAHA!

It’s called a "tabata" interval and it’s a royal bitch from hell. Yes that’s my official review. And I apologize to anyone I have offended.

However, it’s also effective.

Simple concept: 20 second sprint, 10 second recovery, repeated 8 times. You can use this with whatever exercise you want. Tonight I chose to use it as a warmup to my planned easy run.

I made it through 4 of the repetitions before I thought my chest was going to explode. I did however make it through the rest of my run and I have to be honest, I felt cleaner and stronger at the finish.

The next step will be to add 1 repetition each week until I get to the full 8.

Now excuse me while I finish coughing up a lung.
